When I initially chose the Blockchain and Distributed Ledger class unit, it was fueled by a genuine curiosity about blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. These terms had always intrigued me, but their practical applications and potential remained unclear. However, as the course progressed, I gained a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts, such as opening wallets and owning NFTs. These hands-on experiences helped bridge the gap between theory and practice, making the subject more relatable.
Our involvement in creating the DAO book and developing the Soul Bound Token NFT for the BTKN DAO at the University of Western Australia has been a rewarding experience. It allowed us to gain valuable hands-on experience and a deeper understanding of blockchain technology. Witnessing the collaborative effort and creativity of our classmates in the NFT development was exciting, providing a glimpse into their imagination. These projects have sparked our curiosity and expanded our knowledge of blockchain’s practical applications. Overall, our participation has connected us to the concepts learned in the class unit and fueled our enthusiasm to explore the potential of blockchain technology even further.
Although not explicitly mentioned in this summary, attending the web3 event further highlighted the significance of blockchain technology. Meeting individuals from Singapore who specifically traveled to Perth for the event made me realize its importance and impact. Attending this event exposed me to a diverse range of perspectives and innovative projects, expanding my understanding of the potential applications of blockchain technology.
The Blockchain and Distributed Ledger class unit has been a transformative journey of self-discovery and growth. From being unfamiliar with the subject to actively participating in the blockchain ecosystem, I now possess a comprehensive understanding of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. I am excited to continue exploring the possibilities and contributing to the advancement of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.
